Request For Applications

are now accepting applications for the following:

AIDS-Related Malignancies Research
The UCLA AIDS Institute, the UCLA CFAR and the Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center are accepting applications for seed grants to fund multidisciplinary collaborative research between cancer and AIDS investigators on topics relevant to cancers that occur frequently in HIV-infected patients, including AIDS defining and non-AIDS defining malignancies.  This includes research that will lead to the development of novel diagnostic, preventive and therapeutic strategies for both AIDS-defining and non-AIDS-defining malignancies, as well as research on the molecular/cellular mechanism, pathogenesis or epidemiology of cancer in persons living with HIV infection.  Proposals from junior investigators (professorial or research series titles) are encouraged.  Funds are being made available in conjunction with a supplement to the UCLA Cancer Center grant for sites having connections with the AIDS Malignancy Consortium (AMC).  Projects showing connection with the AMC, as well as those from junior investigators will be given preferential priority in funding.  Note: Projects proposing to study only virologic aspects of cancer-associated viruses (i.e. KSHV, EBV, etc.) will not be supported by this mechanism.
Deadline for receipt of Letters of Intent:  Monday March 10, 2014
Applicants whose Letters of Intent are favorably reviewed will be invited to submit a formal proposal. Formal proposals will then be due by Monday April 14, 2014

Application packages can be obtained here or from the UCLA AIDS Institute office, 10940 Wilshire Blvd., Ste 960, Los Angeles, CA 90024.
